As you may be aware the old Top Gear crew, Clarkson, Hammond and May have signed a deal with Amazon.
New motoring show The Grand Tour screeches onto our screen on November 18th. But many people will not be able to watch the new show in stunning high definition.
The show is being shown exclusively on Amazon Prime, so if you aren’t yet a member you will have to buy the Amazon Fire Stick (which start at £34.9)and pay the £80 per year subscription. Some Smart TV’s will have the facility to sign into your Amazon account without the Fire Stick.
The new show promises to be on different scale to BBC Top Gear, which the trio left back in April 2015. I has been said that the opening scene for the first series is set to be the most expensive ever broadcast at £2.5 million. The scene will feature 150 cars, 2,000 acrobats and 6 jet planes, said to be an iconic TV moment.
The show will be broadcasted each week from a different location from around the world. So keep your eyes peeled for breathtaking views in HD at some historic locations.
Unfortunately for many Brits tuning in to the The Grand Tour, this lavish expense may have been a waste of money. With fans forced to stream the show over the internet.
Amazon claims that customers looking to enjoy the show in crystal clear quality will need a broadband speed of at least 3.5Mbps. Large parts of rural Britain still are not getting these basic speeds, meaning they’ll have to opt to view The Grand Tour in an inferior standard format.
So for you that have Amazon prime already be sure to watch the first episode on 18th November.
